    Elon Musk is turning into quite the American Patriot. Do a search on CNN or MSNBC, they won't even touch this story, even though it's looking like it might expose the reason Elon Musk purchased Twitter in the first place, because it's going to prove Democrats were actively doing everything possible to repress a story that exposed the Biden Crime family for what it is. No wonder the Biden administration wants to watch Twitter closely, but when it some to a company like Apple, that is actively working with the Chinese to prevent protestors from communicating with each other they are silent.

    This is huge! Screenshots!

    I am not sure these claims mean much of anything.

    Well it's not like it's anything we didn't already know, but at least now we have the documentation. I am curious how the MSM is going to spin this, or will they just ignore it?

    "Taibbi tweeted "there’s no evidence - that I've seen" that the federal government had a role in suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story but that "the decision was made at the highest levels of the company, but without the knowledge of CEO Jack Dorsey, with former head of legal, policy and trust Vijaya Gadde playing a key role."

    Oh,no!
    More Democrats than Republicans.
    Well whose fault is that? lol

    "Both parties had access to these tools. For instance, in 2020, requests from both the Trump White House and the Biden campaign were received and honored. However… This system wasn't balanced," Taibbi wrote. "It was based on contacts. Because Twitter was and is overwhelmingly staffed by people of one political orientation, there were more channels, more ways to complain, open to the left (well, Democrats) than the right."

    "The resulting slant in content moderation decisions is visible in the documents you’re about to read. However, it’s also the assessment of multiple current and former high-level executives," the journalist teased."

    Cliams? These are the actual communications. This is the Biden administration communicating with Twitter telling them which stories were to be buried and Twitter "handling" it. Do you know why I emphasized "handling"? It refers to a MAJOR revelation in the communications.

    Were any about possible criminal acts by Trump's children in which he was implicated?

    Sorry but whoever is supplying you with talking points is really doing a piss poor job. I expect much better by the end of the weekend.

    And we know the FBI pressured Facebook about it, we know the letter by the 50 former intelligence officials .

    All about the story and evidence about the Biden family selling influence to our worst enemies and getting rich doing it. This should be top priority for the House Judiciary, Ways and Means and Intelligence committees. The Biden scandal is not just the selling of influence buy using the agencies of the United States government to help cover it up if only past the election affecting the outcome of the election.

    I would surely love to see the NY Post sue the Biden administration for violating their first amendment rights. Let the subpoenas and depositions begin.

    Well - Republican and Democrat politicians working with major companies to control the narrative for political gain ... I'm shocked, I tell you. Absolutely
    shocked.

    Vote indépendant, folks. Stop supporting the freaks on the left and right. Alaska got it right this year - ranked voting ... and who won? The Independent candidate.

    There are 3 threads here on PF about this, the other two being on Political opinions & beliefs, and so far the only lefties who want to touch this topic are only making excuses and acting as if this is a normal occurance that happens every election.

    This isn't where this ends, it's the beginning. Biden is about to go down once the investigation starts. I hope they do Jan 6th next. Look out Pelosi.

    What is there, to "spin?" According to the article, the suppression of stuff about Hunter was all the doing of the Twitter staff-- on their own (without being asked). In fact, the article cites one Democratic lawmaker (Khanna), who was objecting to all the censoring because, not only did it seem a violation of free speech, but it was turning "rather innocuous emails" into "a bigger deal than it would have been."

    <Snip>
    Gadde responded to the California lawmaker by "diving into the weeds" of Twitter's policy, but Khanna warned Gadde "this seems [to be] a violation of the 1st Amendment principles."

    "I say this as a total Biden partisan and convinced that he didn't do anything wrong. But the story now has become more about censorship than relatively innocuous emails and it's becoming a bigger deal than it would have been," Khanna wrote.
    <End>


    No, not necessarily. It would depend on what was in those tweets, which this article does not tell us. I would bet, though, that most had to do with Covid propaganda, which could be something the government had a legitimate right to suppress. Not that I expect you to understand this, as you seem to be deluded into thinking there is some kind of smoking gun, here.


    There is no explanation of the content of any of the tweets that Democrats, or Republicans, asked Twitter to review, so your reaction is out of synch, with reality. I would bet you, though, most of those have to do with Covid misinformation, which the government, during a health emergency, has a valid argument, for suppressing.

    Another post from Fantasy Land. I don't know how you think you "know" those things, you list, but it is certainly not from this article.

    Same question, back at you: please copy the Twitter link, which was to a story about Hunter Biden, that the Biden Admin., or anyone in the Democratic caucus, was trying to suppress. The article (quoted above) clearly states that it was members of Twitter, who decided to do this, on their own (not even letting their own CEO know about it). In fact, the story cited one Democrat who was complaining about Twitter's unnecessary, & counter-productive censoring zeal, regarding Hunter.

    You really should read beyond the headlines, once in a while.

    Yes, he’s right.

    Remind me, who was in the White House when this story was supposedly suppressed by the government? Is there any evidence that the government gave orders to Twitter to suppress anything?

    And, WHAT was "Suppressed"?
    The Hunter Biden Story was all over the news...

    That was specific to the hunter Biden laptop. There are several instances where government and politicians requested posts be removed, outside of the hunter Biden fiasco.

    Other things were suppressed. Musk's post above was not related to the hunter Biden fiasco.

    It’s no wonder and now as obvious as the sun rise that democrats are controlling media. Its nothing short of state ran media.
